About Playing It Cool:

Harper Nugent might have a little extra junk in her trunk, but her stepbrother calling her out on it is the last straw… When rugby hottie, Dexter Blake, witnesses the insult, he surprises Harper by asking her out. In front of her dumbass brother. Score! Of course, she knows it’s not for reals, but Dex won’t take no for an answer.   Dexter Blake’s life revolves around rugby with one hard and fast rule: no women. Sure, his left hand is getting a workout, but he's focused on his career for now. Then he overhears an asshat reporter belittle the curvy chick he'd been secretly ogling. What's a guy to do but ask her out? It’s just a little revenge against a poser, and then he'll get his head back in the game.   But the date is better than either expected. So is the next one. And the next. And the heat between them…sizzles their clothes right off.   Suddenly, this fake relationship is feeling all too real…

Review:

Harper has heard all her life how her curves make her less of a woman and that no man is going to want her.  Her stepmother and stepbrother make sure she knows that she’ll never be wanted unless she loses weight, changes her job, so on and so forth.  So when Dexter, one of the rugby players of Sydney Smoke asks her out in front of her stepbrother, she’s sure it’s a dare.  Dex is all about the tits and ass.  He doesn’t want a stick figure, he wants something he can grab ahold of and when he sees the goddess on the sidelines pacing, his attention is automatically caught.  Then when he hears the dirt bag reporter putting her down, he can’t help but step in.

What starts out as a way to put it to her stepfamily starts to turn into something more when Harper and Dex just can’t keep their hands to themselves.  The chemistry between these two is fan yourselves hot.  And as a geek, I loved the gamer in both of them and the Star Wars movie nights.  It made my little geek heart proud.  But it wasn’t all sunshine and roses for them as they made the transition from friends to lovers.  Dex screws shit up as he gets his head all up in his rear.  And Harper has some self-esteem issues.  But it wasn’t over-the-top drama, pretty low angst.  And there were some definite laugh out loud moments. 

It was a great combination of humor, drama and heat that kept me entertained from beginning to end.  I can’t wait to see what Amy Andrews has in store next.  I’m still on the edge of my seat waiting for Linc’s story, I can’t wait to see who knocks him on his arse.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J
